I'm completely shocked that this was not announced on the mainstream media. Ravi was a true global ambassador of all things "love, peace and music" and an absolute virtuoso.

But then again, that is so Ravi Shankar, to fly out under the radar of the mainstream media. Ashes to the Ganges first.

His performance on the Monterey Pop DVD is mezmerizing and the opening sequence on the Concert For George DVD is beautiful as well.

For months i've attempted to get the Scorcese documentary from Netflixs on the life of George Harrison, Living World.
It was recently my bi-annual grind call to Comcast to get another extension on their program bundle deal and ended up earning 3 months of HBO for free. (Verizon Vios is unavailable in many parts of the Bay Area if at all.)

To make this long story short, Living World was on HBO last week and to see the relationship that George and Ravi shared was inspiring.

Ravi, go om....
